Roquette Arugula

    Description

    What is usually known as a salad green, arugula can also be used in cover crop mixes. Arugula is a dense, low growing brassica other than its white flower when it bolts. The bitter taste and smell of arugula is an indication that the glucosinolates give it a natural biofumigant use similar to mustards. Arugula is a very long season plant and if spring planted will stay green late into the fall.
